How do I edit out cuss words in a video

Question

Hi folks,

I have a wedding tape and want to edit out a quick statement made by a guest standing near the camera. I'm editing the video with VideoWave. The comment was made just between a pause in a toast. Its at a good point where I could dubb it out and the toast would go on undisturbed.

 

Thanks for your time.

Depends…

 

In VideoWave you could split at the Toast and before the remark was made and simple delete that portion. Getting a little more creative, you might find a place even a little farther ahead of the Toast and delete back to there then add a transition to smooth it out.

 

Oddly, the eye is far easier to trick than the ear!

 

Plan B: Show/Hide Tracks – Check Native Audio.

 

Split at the start of the remark and at the end, open the Audio Editor (double click the Native track) the and lower the volume as far as it will go.

 

A nice touch would be to find decent piece of audio noise and add it to the Music Track to cover the missing part. Record a microphone sliding across your pants, makes a nice rasping sound.

Thanks Jim. I like your plan B with a replacement audio noise. So I would split the section to isolate the part to be overdubbed then create an audio noise file and insert it into that isolated section under the "Music Track" section?

Yes, but after you split and add the noise play with the volume on the native track so that it hears like a seamless recording but with a some audio noise that obliterates the indiscretion…

 

This happens to me all the time, the indiscretion is usually mine :lol:

 

Play around with it. One more I forgot… Under the Movie menu there is an Add Narration. You can record over the Native track so you might be able to cough or clear your throat of a large hairball just enough to cover the problem.

 

Play around with it, it will be fun.
